to bar u.s. human rights abuses. some say this is all evidence of a new cold war. stephen cohen is a professor at nyu and william brodeur was an ambassador in russia, and was his former employer and he is, of course, one of the biggest proponents behind the magnitsky act. welcome to you both. >> thank you. >> william, explain the importance of the act from your point of view? >> very simply, it is a piece of legislation which is sort of designed for the modern day problems of what's going on in russia. in russia, you have a regime which is basically out to steal as much money as possible from their own people. in response to that, when people try to stop it in any way, like sergei magnitsky, they get killed. what the act does is it creates consequences for the corrupt murdering kelp to crates running russia today and creates consequences outside of russia by banning their visas and freezing their assets in america. >> steve cohen, you disagree with the magnitsky act. do you wish congress hadn't passed it? >> i do for many reasons, but as you said in your introduction i think mos
cold war. stephen cohen is a professor at nyu and william browder was his former employer and he is, of course, one of the biggest proponents behind the magnitski act. william, explain the importance of the act from your point of view? >> very simply, it is a piece of legislation which is sort of designed for the modern day problems of what's going on in russia. in russia, you have a regime which is basically out to steal as much money as possible from their own people. when people try to stop it in any way, like sergeis magnitsky, they get killed. the corrupt running russia today and creates consequences outside of russia by banning their visas and freezing their assets in america. >> steve cohen, you disagree with the magnitsky act. >> i do for many reasons, but as you said in your introduction i think moscow and washington are sliding into a new cold war, which would be very bad for national security and the magnitsky act further poisons the relationship. mr. browder is right to a certain extent, but not quite as simple as he says. even though this may be this act just a lot of w
has new details on steve cohen. melissa: you are always controversial. charlie: here is what is interesting about steve cohen. in february, as they see faces a window of redemptions. here is what we know. fac officials are screaming to prevent massive reductions. they are currently contacting and holding one-on-one meetings with investors. they are essentially saying that despite everything, the investigation -- a wells notice has been given. despite all of that, they think that steve cohen we'll be okay. they may get a large fine. they think they are facing charges. they will not be indicted. it will not be a criminal case. keep your money with us. the bottom line is this, you do not know until february. investors essentially hate this type of controversy. some very large investors have put holds on the stocks. i can also tell you, steve cohen and these guys are very aggressive. they are out there trying to get large investors to stay with it. they will come out after the story. these are different one-on-one meetings. this is crisis mode. they think there is a very good lik
and pga tour. what is deer antler spray? dr. joshua cohen, an endocrinologist at george washington hospital joins us now to hopefully answer our questions. you that for be with us. >> you're welcome. >> what is it? is it derived from deer antlers? >> it is derived from deer antlers and from what is apparently called the the velvet part of the-yard penaltiler, the -- of the antler, the soft covering of the antler, especially in young deer. >> i understand that it's called, for those who are in the know about this, it's igf- 1, or the insulin-like growth factors. we understand the makers say it shouldn't be banned. it has a lot of health benefits. they claim everything from healthy joints to enhancing sex drive and reducing belly fat. on the sorry face, it sounds like a miracle drug. the question s it safe? >> igf-1 is a hormone, a small protein and made naturally in your body. people make it mostly in their liver and other places as well, and it has a role in normal growth and possibly in promoting muscle growth as well as possibly promoting some forms of healing and relief from inf
he'll be sworn in as secretary of state replacing hillary clinton. william cohen will replace kerry as an interim secretary up till a hearing in june. his confirmation hearing to replace defense secretary leon panetta begins today and his biggest critics will be his fellow republicans. susan mcginnis is in washington with the latest. susan, good morning. >> good morning, anne-marie. yeah. headachele will not get the smooth ride that john kerry got on his pass to secretary of state. haggle will face critics who have called him everything from anti-israel to anti-gay to anti-green. this is the first time he addresses those criticisms at a hearing that is critical to determining whether he becomes the next secretary of defense. chuck hagel, a former republican senator from nebraska should not expect a friendly reception on capitol hill this morning. >> president obama should choose someone else to lead the pentagon. >> reporter: texas senator john cornyn laid out the case on wednesday saying hagel is tough on israel and soft on iran. >> he simply does not understan
clinton. william cohen will replace kerry until an election in june. that probably won't happen to chuck hagel. his confirmation hearing to replace defense secretary leon panetta begins today and his biggest critics will be his fellow republicans. susan mcginnis is in washington with the latest. susan, good morning. >> good morning, anne-marie. chuck hagel will not get the smooth ride that john kerry did. they even called him ents from anti-israel to anti-gay to anti-green. this is the first time he addresses those criticisms at a hearing that is critical to whether he becomes the next secretary of defense. chuck naegele, a former republican senator from nebraska should not expect a friendly reception on capitol hill this morning. >> president obama should choose someone else to lead the pentagon. >> reporter: he laid out the case on wednesday saying hagel is tough on israel, soft on iran. >> he simply does not understand the true basis of the u.s./israel alliance and he's the same person who suggests united states might be able to live with a nuclear iran. >> some well funded groups hav
cohen played -- mickey cohen played by sean penn. it's a little bit quirky. penn is definitely channeling the robert deniro element from "the untouchable." it's a fun movie. but they waste the talent of emma stone. she is so one dimensional in the film. not her fault, it's the writing. go see a matinee, don't pay the full price. three and a half out of five. worth seeing in theaters. >> your thoughts quickly on the oscar nominations, you mentioned katherine bigelow not being nominated for director. >> right. >> what's the guy's name from argo? >> ben >> ben affleck. >> do they have to broaden the director nominees as well? >> that's my point. i think that if they're going to nominate nine movies, you can not giver argo a best picture nomination and not nominate the guy who created it. that's ridiculous for me. i think these are the worst nominees i've seen in a long time. i was happy with the "django unchained," but you cannot snub bigelow, leonardo dicaprio never been awarded. an actor from a james bond film never nominated and should be nominated. he was incredible. i was ups
again. like hagel, william cohen was a republican senator before he was bill clinton's secretary of defense. >> i think he'll face the same challenge in terms of people on the democratic side saying, wait, we have some pretty talented people that are -- could step in at a moment's notice and fill that spot. and the republicans will say, why are you helping out a democratic administration? >> reporter: one key republican already is challenging hagel. >> i am concerned about many of the comments that he made and has made, like reference to a jewish lobby, which i don't believe exists, i believe a pro-israel lobby exists. >> others insist hagel is not anti-israel. >> he belongs to a sort of tough minded -- in this case republican view of israel. that in fact accepts the reality that while the united states and israel are very close allies and will remain close allies their views on every issue cannot be expected to coincide. >> reporter: and critics in the gay and lesbian community have turned around their opposition to hagel. in 1998, hagel opposed james hormel an openly gay man to
is a lot safer. our senior medical correspondent elizabeth cohen joins me now to explain. what are we talking about in terms of rules? you think they should be there, wouldn't you? >> you would think they definitely should have already been there and safety advocates have been begging for these for years and thrilled the fda doing the basic things. better measures to keep animals out of fields where crops are growing because what they do in fields? poop in fields. we don't want that. better rules to get farm workers to wash their hands and the last one, little gross but i have to say it. okay? got to say it. which is, port-a-potties for the work earls because when they don't have them, what do they do? >> come on. no way, elizabeth. that's not already a regulation? >> no, no. there aren't strict rules like the rules doing here. again, you can see why safety advocates so frustrated because some of the things are so basic. and they're hoping these will be fully implemented. we have done the segments, peanuts, spinach. they seem to go on and on. >> in fact, i was going to bring that up.
by the last two democratic presidents. william cohen, and bob gates, re-appointed by president obama in 2009. and chuck hagel is a republican senator from nebraska. the republican committee is not jumping up and down celebrating. today, they released a statement about serious concerns that hagel has taken on a range of critical national security issues. republican senator graham got even more specific. >> chuck hagel, if confirmed to be secretary of defense would be the most antagonistic secretary of defense towards israel in our nation's history. he said you should negotiate with iran, sanctions won't work, that israel must negotiate with hamas, he has long cut his ties with the republican party. this is an in-your-face nomination by the president, to those of us that support. >> he means they have this to say about the conservative movement, america, the next chapter. chuck hagel writes, so why did we invade iraq? i believe it is the triumph, arrogance and incompetent that took america into this war of choice. chuck hagel, it should be said did not begin his career as a foreign policy apos
to get him confirmed? joining us is william cohen, a republican, i should point out, a former republican senator who bill clinton brought in. to bring a republican into his cabinet. you're the clear predicate for what the president -- this president, is trying to do with chuck hagel. what about chuck hagel and all the criticisms of past positions on iraq on the surge, his relationship with john mccain, obviously a troubling factor in terms of mccain's response. >> he is well quadfied. i have known him for years. the president has known him for years. he is entitled to have the people he wants for his cabinet, unless there's? fundamental character flaw or policy difference which would make that person unqualified. i think you have to start with that premise, and i think you start with that premise, then you will not find the disqualifying factors there. chuck hagel is well known to the president. he is very, very well founded in foreign policy, security policy. he is a substantive individual, serious-minded, tough-minded, and blunt. >> is he tough enough to cut the pentagon budget where y
senator william cohen he appointed to his defense secretary. and president george bush did the same thing, he pointed one democrat, norman mineta was chosen by george w. bush to serve as transportation secretary. in george w. bush's second term, norm mineta stuck around. he did not leave until close to the end. so president bush never appointed another democrat, but he did have that one democrat, norman mineta during that term in his cabinet. barack obama at this point has doubled the record of cabinet bipartisanship of his predecessors, and more than that. you'll recall that he picked bob gates to stay on as secretary of defense. so republican at defense. president obama also picked ray lahood for the norm mineta honorary bipartisanship chair over at the department of transportation. transportation was held by a democrat under bush. it has been held by a republican the whole time under obama. but beyond that, beyond defense and transportation, president obama also had another attempt at bringing another republican into his cabinet. you remember when he offered judd gregg the job of comme
, as richard cohen notes in "the washington post" nothing hagel has said about israel is not said in the israeli press on a daily basis. trust me, by the "wall street journal" standards israeli media would be deeply anti-semitic. lost perhaps in the discussion over hagel's position on israel is one of the main reasons he was nominated in the first place. >> most importantly, chuck knows that war is not an abstraction. he knows that sending young americans to fight and bleed in the dirt and mud, that's something we only do when it's absolutely necessary. >> a decorated war veteran reportedly requested to be sent to vietnam. hagel spoke to the library of congress in 2002 about how his military service had informed his world view. >> someone needs to represent that perspective in our government as well. the people in washington make the policy, but it's the little guys who come back in the body bag. >> as president obama attempts to put his next cabinet together, republicans seem to have developed an acute case of goldilocks syndrome. susan rice was too much of a loyalist, and republ
. >> michael, roger cohen writes, "when i asked myself what i hoped barack obama's second term would inaugural, my answer was a new era of diploma as where i. remember that thing? the nobel peace prize. obama has chosen two knowledgeable professionals who have seen enough war to loathe it and have deep experience of the world. i think they're sharing a brain today, at least for on this one. hagel and kerry would seem to be at great emissaries of that reboot. >> i think you also look at the worlds as it is today. what can they really do? when obama came in, he was able to say i'm not bush and to go arnold the world with that message and that did make a difference beyond just winning him a nobel peace prize. >> most of his first term was management. he was managing the arab spring and managing terrorists and managing a drawdown in afghanistan. it wasn't really the big vision. we don't have a comprehensive test ban treaty, and not resolution with iran. there's no big picture thing. when i spoke with the president in december about this and asked him sort of a broad question about foreign policy,
william cohen. if you remember, a republican who served under the president -- democratic administration of president clinton. now, if people here in the building say, look, you know, chuck hagel would be fine for us, including military uniformed service members because they understand, as you just pointed out, that the white house is going to be pulling the strings, turning the screws no matter who is the secretary of defenses. republican or democrat. i do want to set the record straight a little bit on this debate over the surge. now, senator hagel in the confirmation hearing said that 1,200 americans were killed during the 18-month surge operation. that's true. 1,200 americans died, but the actual number of combat deaths was 942. what's important to point out is that the 12 months before the surge began the total number of service members killed in iraq was 820. now, this is the most important figure i think if you are going to argue was the surge a success or not? that is the fact that the 12-month period following the surge operation there were 313 american deaths and the next year
with his family and all of a sudden became very ill. senior medical correspondent elizabeth cohen spoke to his parents about their son's final days. >> the family was getting ready for a joyful christmas when on december 31st, 17-year-old son max started feeling sick. tired, fever. >> he never really got like super sick. >> two days later he was feeling better. played in the snow on vacation in wisconsin. celebrated christmas with his family. but christmas night, max felt sick again. >> excessive like 104.9 fever. we could not break it. >> the next morning, his parents took max to the hospital. where he was diagnosed with the flu. >> within 30 minutes, i mean the doctor was like something really wrong here. his kidneys are starting to fail. >> max was rushed by helicopter to a larger hospital. >> one of the last coherent things he said he looked at me and there were tears rolling down his face. >> he was scared >> he said, mom, i'm scared. >> i said i know, buddy. i am, too. then he saw me crying. he said mom, it's going to be okay. you're going to be okay. i love you. and that's really
to the clinton administration when president clinton invited william cohen, a republican to be defense secretary. then the obama administration, president obama asked robert gates, a republican to be defense secretary. then there was leon panetta. and now another republican, chuck hagel. what's wrong with democrats being defense secretary? >> right. actually, just as an historical footnote, roberts used to be a republican. you know, i think that there's a sort of feeling that each one of these can be justified. i think president clinton and cohen had a good relationship, as does president obama and senator hagel. in gates' instance, that made a lot of sense. so much was going on that you didn't want to have an immediate change in the defense. but that is true, that it looks like democrats always want to appoint republican secretaries of defense. also if you look at the history of the independent councils, they have almost all been republicans. and as a democrat i sometimes get frustrated, too. we can't find an independent council in our own party. i can understand the frustration but the preside
. secretary cohen is out there now. i came back with the following set of impressions from it. first of all, they are very concerned about what is going on in iraq. they understand about the problems of the weapons of mass destruction and the fact that they do threaten them. it is less visible, i think, than a cross border threat. second, they are fully convinced that this crisis has been created by saddam hussein. they are concerned about the iraqi people, as are we, which is why we support this oil for food plan that we wrote originally with the resolution and is now being proposed to be expanded by kofi annan. they also preferred diplomatic moves, but they also understand that should there be consequences, there will be responsible for the grave consequences. i feel confident of their support. they state they have domestic audiences and they state their support for their own purposes. i do feel that should we use force, they will be helpful to us. i think that they also understand the dangers. it is not quite the same situation as when saddam hussein invaded kuwait and there were six mon
cohen and kate knots, our transplant coordinators. mary grace hands sell, operating room nurse manager. jon: if you want to continue watching the news conference we'll have it streaming live on foxnews.com. doctors at john hopkins hospital in baltimore announcing they have down a double arm transplant on a very brave army soldier, brandon marrocco. he was the first american soldier to survive the loss of two arms and two legs. it happened in an ied explosion in iraq. it is an experimental surgery but doctors say he will be discharged from the hospital today after they transplanted donor arms. they hope that they will in essence take and that he will be able to gain more utility from those transplanted arms. it is a phenomenal story and he is a very brave veteran. patti ann: just incredible. right now the egyptian government is dealing with another day of violent protests. at least 52 people are dead and the head of the army is warning that the political turmoil is putting the state on the verge of collapse. president mohammed morsi declaring a state of emergency which includes a curfew
, like when william cohen. can you compare when william cohen was nominated as a republican by a democratic president as opposed to senator hagel? >> we've heard republicans say that chuck hagel ceased being a republican several years ago. they were concerned when he voted against -- remember, he voted against the iraq surge. he was against it. he differed from the bush administration on a number of things and i think a lot of republicans feel that he sort of left the party a while back. >> brian: jennifer griffin at the white house for a very good reason. news secretary of defense is going to be nominated today. thanks. >> gretchen: another controversial issue was general mccrystal. remember over in afghanistan he was leading the charge there and he gave an interview to the rolling stone magazine. in that, there were many revelations about how he felt about president obama and his administration. subsequently, mccrystal did resign. >> brian: i will say this, he was never quoted, criticizing the administration. others were saying that's how he felt. but he never blamed anybo
correspondent elizabeth cohen has a special airing tonight on "20/20," shocking medical mistakes. so when you hear that, i'm a little unnerved already. >> it is unnerving. the reason why we did this special is -- is i know so many people this has happened to, just personally. i said i've got to do a special that helps protect people because you don't hear about these things, right? you can't hear about them. >> no. >> interestingly enough a study has come out that looks at surgical mistakes and shows how often they happen. and these numbers, i'm glad you're sitting down because they are really pretty horrifying. >> brace myself? >> yes. they're pretty horrifying. i'm glad you're not having surgery any time soon. there's a study out of johns hopkins. they found that they looked at surgical tools being left inside patients. that happens 39 patients a week. surgical tools left inside. 39 patients a week. 20 patients a week have an operation on the wrong body part. so they were supposed to have their tonsils out and instead they did something else. >> the wrong leg or wrong eye or whatever it mig

were talking about a little earlier this week. i want to get right to elizabeth cohen, our medical correspondent. what exactly is deer antler spray? why would that be beneficial to someone and why is that doping? >> right. the people who make this stuff say that it comes from what they call the velvet of deer antlers. they scrape this so-called velvet off and they say that the velvet contains igf1. and igf1 is the real deal. they give it to children who have medical conditions ajd are very short to help them grow. and the makers of these sprays, and there's a lot of them out there. the makers of these sprays say that it enhances muscle growth. they say that it can make you stronger. however, the experts that we talked to said the potential dangers are that it can also increase the chances of having muscle pain and even getting diabetes and heart disease. >> is there some indication that deer antlers grow so fast or there's some quick regeneration? why would you use deer antlers versus something else? >> right, that's a great question. that's the reasoning that these products give.

senior medical correspondent elizabeth cohen. what did doctors find in this new study? >> this is fascinating. doctors autopsied hundreds of men. they found the ones who were on beta blockers, very common blood pressure medications, had fewer signs of alzheimer's in their brains. fewer lesions. less atrophy. they think it might possibly be because it's good for the brain to have lower blood pressure. it sort of takes some of the stress off the brain. maybe that's why they had those findings. >> so explain exactly what a beta blocker is. does it mean people should routinely be taking beta blockers if they suspect they could come down with dementia or alzheimer's down the road? >> beta blockers block the effect of adrenaline which is what helps bring your blood pressure down. doctors said absolutely not, you should not be on a beta blocker unless you need it. if you don't need the beta blocker, it might cause your more medical problems then you started out with. now, if you do have high blood pressure, you can ask your doctor, hey, i'd like to start on a beta blocker, le
